1Jetstream Weighs In
The Jetstream is an average looking tablet until you power it on. One thing we were immediately put off by was its weight, which tips the scale at 25 ounces. That’s 1 pound, 9 ounces at a time when the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, which has same display dimensions, weighs less than 1.3 pounds. Apple’s iPad 2 is also around 1.3 pounds.

One area where the Jetstream blows the Tab 10.1 away is in the camera, which is 8 megapixels in the back and records video in 1080p. The front camera is a 1.3 megapixel shutter. As a side note, while we liked the contoured design of the Jetstream, we’re not fans of the gray matte backs HTC prefers for its Android smartphones and tablets.

However, that device has a 7-inch screen. The roomier display of the Jetstream made Scribe more appealing to us.
